Trademark Class 4: Industrial Oils and Lubricants

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 4 is opted to register a trademark for lubricants, fuels, oils, candles and wicks.

The NICE Classification was established in 1957 by NICE Agreement, and it divides marks into 45 different classes by Goods and Services (Classes 1-34 for Goods and Classes 35-45 for Services). The purpose of these classifications is to allow users to seek trademark goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.

TM Class 4 includes industrial oils and greases; lubricants; dust absorbing, wetting and binding compositions; fuels (including motor spirit) and illuminants; candles and wicks for lighting.

Why Should We Opt For TM Class 4?

You would choose Trademark Class 4 if you were registering any of these types of goods:

  • Oils and greases
  • Lubricants
  • Dust absorbing
  • Fuels and illuminants
  • Wetting and binding compositions
  • Candles
  • Coal
  • Wax

You would not use Trademark Class 4 if you were registering for:

  • Certain special industrial oils and greases

Related Classes

A related trademark class is one that is related to another class; this is due to the Indian Trademark Office (ITO) has determined that applicants registering within Class 4 may register in these other classes too.

If you are not sure while choosing Class 4 for your product, you also consider the following “Related Classes”: Class 2- Paints, Varnishes, Lacquers, Preservation, Class 3- Cosmetic and Cleaning Substances, Class 5- Pharmaceuticals, Class 29- Meat, Fish Poultry, Class 30- Coffee, Flour, Rice Products, Class 34- Tobacco Products, and Class 37- Construction and Repair Services.

Trademark Registration fees also vary on bases of the Class system. You must pay a separate registration fee for each class of goods and services that you want to register. For instance, if you are going to register a trademark for Hardware in Class 6 and Software for Class 9, you should pay two separate fees.

It is necessary to choose the correct class at the time of registering a trademark, if you register a trademark in the wrong class, you must start the registration process from the beginning.
